The best rat trap: Believe it or not, the tried-and-true, low-tech mouse trap (snap trap) – a simple piece of wood with a spring-loaded bar – is the most effective and humane way to kill a rat. Snap traps kill rats instantly, they are inexpensive and reusable, and they can fit in small spaces. Do not worry about the bait – you can use anything from peanut butter to fruit to – yes, cheese.

Building Inspection and Rat-Proofing


what do rodents eat in the wild

  • Do rats carry rabies?

  • Rat Infestation

  • Do rats bite sleeping babies?

Also, be careful when setting snap traps. Rat control requires an integrated approach that includes non-lethal tools such as careful inspections, upgraded sanitation, and rat-proofing structures. You might find holes in walls and wood. Timing a sealup for rats is impossible, because they leave for short periods, and they don't all leave at the same time of night. Liquid baits may be an effective alternative in situations where normal baits are not readily accepted, especially where water is scarce or where rats must travel some distance to reach water. Roof rats are omnivores and will feed on many types of vegetation such as fruits, grains, seeds and grocery produce. Rats leave the attic during the night, to go out and forage for water and food. The young are able to breed before they are four months old.

Urine Stains & Odors - Rodent urine deposited on rodent runways appear as a line of fine drops or streaks under an ultraviolet flashlight, or black light tool. They may be frightened by sound-producing devices for awhile but they become accustomed to constant and frequently repeated sounds quickly. Indoors, runways appear as clean paths through dust or dirt. ALWAYS USE RESPIRATORY PROTECTION WHEN REMOVING RODENT DROPPINGS. Bait blocks are easy to place in small areas and difficult-to-reach locations out of the way of children, pets, and nontarget species. Listen for rat evidence, like their scurrying and running noises in the attic, and scratching in the walls. At birth they are hairless, and their eyes are closed.

Rats tend to segregate themselves socially in both space and time. The damage control methods used for roof rats are essentially the same as for Norway rats. Rub marks - rats get coated with dirt and they like to rub against the walls to find their way around a room’s perimeter, since they can't see so well. Read more about where rats live. Control of roof rat damage in agriculture represents yet another scenario. Exclusion and sealing of sites greater than ½ inch (about the size of a dime) using screens, flashing, door sweeps and other materials to keep rats from entering a structure. Norway rats are common around human residences and industrial and commercial areas. Control methods must reflect an understanding of the roof rat’s habitat requirements, reproductive capabilities, food habits, life history, behavior, senses, movements, and the dynamics of its population structure.
